Cackling Kamala Harris has been getting some bad press recently. Two aides quit. The Democrats are apparently worried she’s so unlikeable and unpopular that she’ll ruin things for all women that might run for office. And now there’s a report that she’s a “bully” and “soul-destroying boss.”
That report, first published by the Washington Post (which shows you how bad it is when even regime media outlets are coming out against her, has this to say:
The rumors started circulating in July: Vice President Harris’s staff was wilting in a dysfunctional and frustrated office, burned out just a few months after her historic swearing-in and pondering exit strategies.
[…]the quartet of soon-to-be-empty desks reignited questions about why Harris churns through top-level Democratic staff, an issue that has colored her nearly 18 years in public service, including her historic but uneven first year as vice president. Now, those questions about her management extend to whether it will hamper her ability to seek and manage the presidency.
[…]“It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work,” one former staffer said. “With Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence. So you’re constantly sort of propping up a bully and it’s not really clear why.”
The report goes on to cite other sources who have worked with Kamala, some of whom are positive about her and some of whom are quite negative about her and her style.
